Re: When did the perception of Insurrection change?
How the hell did the Luddite Baku kick the Son'a off the planet in the first place? And why didn't the Son'a just move to another continent and build their own technologically advanced society to spite the Luddites? Hell, if the Son'a were competent, there wouldn't even be a movie.
They had the means to look at Data's positronic brain without much effort. They have the technology, stored somewhere perhaps.
And it's explained that the Son'a didn't want to live in the nebula (that no one else can enter without complications), they wanted to be part of the action. The Baku liked the place because it was protected by the nebula, the Son'a didn't. The Son'a only wanted the radiation. They wanted to have the cake and eat it too, so to speak.
Philosophies and intentions are not plot holes just because you don't agree with them.
so the Baku are colossal hypocrites who were fine with using advanced technology for violence if it helped to preserve their comfortable way of life?
that doesn't make them look like hypocrites at all.
